Analog Computer
  • A device that performs operations on data that are represented, within the device, by continuous variables having some physical resemblance to the quantities being represented. Note: The earliest analog computers were purely mechanical devices with levers, cogs, cams, etc. , representing the data or operator values. Modern analog computers typically employ electrical parameters such as voltage, resistance, or current to represent the quantities being manipulated. See also computer, digital computer.
